    I feel the same way man. Something just isn't right and I can't put my finger on it. It may just be a case of so many small holes in the dam that we know we'll never plug them all. This country's not going to right itself. Too much money, too much politics, and not enough genuine service and care are being given by those that are supposed to be looking out for us. Everyone seems to have an agenda and that agenda has nothing to do with making the country better.

    All that being said, I still wouldn't leave. I guess I'm looking forward to being the leader of a small group of guys like in Red Dawn when the crap hits the fan. Minus the Cubans of course lol.

    Most people who think they can "just leave" really don't get that you can't, "just leave when things get bad."

    Most developed nations don't let regular folks waltz on in, on a whim.
    I've researched the hell out of this and immigrating, nearly anywhere, is very difficult.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Not if you can show a sufficient means of support...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Of course, but in a lot of places that's millions of dollars.
    NZ for instance, if you have a million to invest in the economy, they'll let you in, with restrictions.
    With 10 mil, they roll out the red carpet, a no restrictions residency visa and quicker path to citizenship.

    This more or less goes for most countries.
    With Uruguay and Israel being exceptions.

    You can emigrate to NZ with a legitimate job offer...

    Yep, that goes for most other countries too.
    You just have to find one.

    If things were to get bad here, how many nations would shut their doors to prevent the influx of new immigrants, overloading their systems.
    I'm just saying, that for most people, immigrating to another nation is just not possible.
    Thinking you can up and leave, with your new home country welcoming you with open arms, is not a likely scenario.

    Good evening, AP.

    ....which varies from country to country. Australia requires more than some. I wonder what Canada's requirements are?

    I have an uncle who is only a couple years older than me that left this country, he now lives on a boat. He got fed up and calls the ocean home. Last I heard he was off the coast of Venezuela. He's been trying to get me to buy a boat and join him but I'm a landlubber.
